Default imported session data overwrites current automation!?

Hi All!

I have 2 sessions one with a "short" version of a show, and one "long" version.(They are exact copies but the short version has 1min thats cut out from the middle part)

I started mixing the short version and ended up with a result a wanted to apply to the long.

I thought that having the both session in same session should be the best way.

I used import session data from the "short" session to import the "long" and used the following settings:


* Audiomedia options - Consolidate from source media

* Trackoffsett options 02:00:00:00 (My short version starts at 01:00:00:00)

* Match Tracks

* Main playlist options - Overlay new on existing playlist


The problem is that when the new session data is imported it clears the automation from the current session.

Is there a way to do this without losing automation?

Try it the old way. Import to new tracks (do not match tracks), cut-paste from new tracks to your destination tracks (you can do a few tracks at a time or the whole thing), delete the new tracks once they are empty.

try importing regions and media only ... disable all other options including 'Volume Automation' from the pop-up list in the import dialog.
